    It would be quite huge blow to the CrackBerry nation if our benevolent leader joined the Dark Side.

    Thinks of it as this, we live under the flag of the great nation of CB, and our fearless leader is not only a leader, but a diplomat. He have to do visit to other nations under the flag of Mobile nation. And if we don't have a broader mind set, how better are we to the trolls and biased loony

    Whatever spin is applied to it, it is what it is: disappointing that anybody would even look at an apple product.

    As kbz said above, it is part of Mobile Nations. Kevin, as the founder, is promoting all the parts of Mobile Nations site. It doesn't have anything to do with his personal choice of phone or tablet.

    I don't think so. As the leader of crackberry you stand firm and strong on the issue, not flip flop around. That's how wars are lost. This site is turning out to be a joke. Crackberry headquarters uses apple computers, now ipads and i am sure he has an iphone too.

    What makes a rabid bb fanbois any different than a rabid apple fanboi? There is no one perfect device.

    Besides, it's already being discussed here.

    Kevin is the Chief Media Officer for Mobile Nations. His work is going to expand to the other MN sites as well.

    Besides, since when does being a fan of one brand/product preclude you from liking or owning products from another company? It's a very close minded approach that essentially makes you a "brand redneck". How can you make educated decisions and truly know the pros and cons of your favored device when you've never owned or tried anything else?

    Some of you guys take this stuff way too seriously...

    The only "war" is on this forum and others like it.

    I wasn't aware RIM made computers.

    Like what is the big deal.....

    Exactly what kind of computers are they suppose do use... last time I looked it was either Mac or PC for business use... To my knowledge Blackberry does not make computers...

    as for using IPad or IPhone... again who cares... Crackberry is at it's basis is a business first and promoting Blackbery second. It seems to be a successful we run
    business.....With the amount of references on the net to Crackberry I would think Kevin has and is doing a good job promoting the site and the product.....

    I have a Blackberry Torch 9800, 2 Playbooks, Ipad, Ipod and Android tablet... I consider myself a Blackberry addict but just because I have and use other devices does not make me going to the "Dark Side"....

    Blackberry is not an island unto itself nor should it be... Apple is trying that approach right now and it may be their downfall.......

    He is promoting Mobile Nation, getting more exposure. I love the interview, all them folks standing on line waiting all night long for the store to open in the am & Kevin wipe out the ipad & tell news guy that he picked it up midnight at Walmart. Priceless.

    Its kinda hard to sell goods to the public and knock them at the same time. Even so Kevin has expressed his preference for BlackBerry. He also uses Mac I believe.

    Perhaps if rim had looked at the competition the way fearless leader has, they wouldn't be in their current position.

    Like I said in the other thread about this topic:

    Kevin was all over it, helping get coverage for iMore. He's still BlackBerry's #1 Fanboy though, don't worry.
    It's not a "bad sign"... it's being a well-rounded, informed blogger. In fact, all the editors of the Mobile Nations sites have devices from different platforms. My main device is a 9900, and I have a PlayBook, an HP Touchpad, an iPhone 4, and an iPad 2. Bla1ze has more devices than I can count, including several iOS and Android devices. If you don't know what the other side has, how can you be objective?
    You guys need to not take everything so seriously, acting like the world is crumbling. Kevin is in charge of not only CrackBerry, but also iMore, Android Central, WPCentral, and webOSNation. Would you be having such a hissy fit if you saw him at a Windows phone launch? I doubt it. We have several editors that are cross site, helping out on the others when they can. For example, Rene from iMore helped at CES2011 with PlayBook coverage.

    If you want to see his true feelings about it, check out his twitter. (@crackberrykevin)
    It might put some of your minds at ease. :P

    I think this site does a good job covering BlackBerry

    But, it's a little bit ridiculous to 'stand in line' for an iPad that's basically only a spec upgrade. This shows devotion to the brand and our leader was there
